Get your racer on with Toyota

Motorsport is expensive, but Toyota has created a category that is, if not affordable, at least bearable. Organisers of the new-for-2016 Toyota 86 Racing Series say competitors can buy a spot on the grid for less than $70,000. That includes the cost of a race-ready 86 GT manual prepped by Neal Bates Motorsport and a five-round championship run at select V8 Supercar events, including the Bathurst 1000. If you’re good enough, there’s even a prize pool of $125,000, which in our maths, means you could walk away from a year’s racing richer, not poorer.
